Description Chris Lalancette 2009-01-08 03:59:29 EST
A KVM guest with virtio block devices needs to properly label the block devices as system_u:object_r:fixed_disk_device_t

We simply need the policy to set the file context /dev/vd* correctly.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

     Ping?  I totally forgot about this BZ.  Is there any way to get this patch into 4.8 selinux-policy-targeted?
